Food was very good and service from Nick was excellent. Great place to have a drink and watch the wild card games! Just came in from Maryland/Illinois and really enjoy having a drink at this local watering hole.

We like to come to this restaurant every time we travel to Carlsbad. We really enjoy the food, the service, the outdoor seating and local talent that performs! We've had lunch and dinner and have enjoyed every visit! After eating we like to browse the shops!

We weren't too hungry so we split the Chicken Carbon Fajitas. Even with the split, when you add the $2 split charge, you get a lot of food. It included black beans, rice, chicken, onions, bell peppers, lettuce, guacamole, salsa and sliced tomatoes. You can get flour or corn tortillas, we mixed then and both were good. Live music on...

Walking around downtown Carlsbad and heard the live music. The band was playing on the outside patio and was quite good and very entertaining. Billy Watson....we bought a cd. Ice cold beer and good Mexican food with live music... Doesn't get much better than that!

Hubby and I needed a drink after a long week so we slipped out after the kids were settled. Hadn't been here in many years and it still seems to be the go-to place. Typical bar/club late night. We had a few drinks, watched the younger people dance and left after about 1 hours. It served it's purpose.

I was looking for some live music, a glass of wine, and something to snack on. While the food was good, the atmosphere was LOUD and seemed to be a gathering place for the older, single and looking crowd.

We stopped by for a mid-afternoon appetizer and drink. Weather was perfect so we sat outside. Had a few draft beers and the crispy asparagus (very good) and chicken quesadillas (average). Friendly waitress who answered our questions about the menu and the area. It overlooks the train (Coaster and Amtrak) which run about every 15 min but we really didn't... More

Great food here. We sat inside and really enjoyed our meal. My husband said that their burgers were amazing. I had vegetable quesadilla which was fantastic.
